“Nice!”

A big and amazing church! Very far from the tradition of my country, it has surprised me in the best way!

“Come back in a few years!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I had heard great things about this church with its magnificent organ. The church is quite simple, unfortunately the organ is being restored and will be impressive once it's working properly. The organ concert was good, as it showed how in need the restoration of the organ was!

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Nice but underwhelming. Fee not worth what you get to see in my opinion. Yes, the interior is well preserved and looks quite impressive but I have been in better and they were free. Courtyard was only other part to see and was very bland.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Keep in mind that the visit is for a fee - 2 euro if I am not mistaken. Often there are performances going on (organ music especially).
